The Bethe Lectures - Gordon Baym, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Abstract: In recent years physicists have created several new forms of matter
-- the densest hottest matter in the universe called a "quark-gluon plasma,"
and the coldest matter in the universe, in the form of trapped atomic gases.
This talk will describe these two exciting forms of matter and touch upon unexpected connections between them.
